New Teabagger approach: news outlets edited footage to falsely demonstrate that pro-Palin peeps were
New Teabagger approach is to claim that news outlets edited footage to falsely demonstrate that pro-union protesters outnumbered Sarah Palin supporters in Wisconsin.

The man in the screencap above holds a sign to encourage voters to vote Klopenburg (who lost to Prosser in a this is what democracy looks like election). It was couched between footage of Palins Saturday afternoon speech and presented as footage taken from the same day.

Was this just a sloppy edit from a professional mainstream media network? Surely with all of the previous footage of union protests, CBS could have used a less suspect excerpt to edit into their piece on Saturdays rally. Or, to play devils advocate, was this protester just a dim bulb who brought the wrong sign? Thoughts?

MY thoughts are that these people are beyond desperate to show that after waiting so long for the Mama Grizzly to emerge from her den, that she is in fact still able to draw huge crowds, and that the people of Wisconsin simply adore her. So if the journalists dare to report otherwise, then they must be attacked and shown to be prejudiced against their Queen of the North Star.
